Just 20 minutes is all you need to transform simple pork chops, potatoes and onions into a SERIOUSLY DELICIOUS meal! We’re talking fork tender thick chops, oniony mashed potatoes and a thick, rich pork gravy!
So this dish kinda just ‘happened’. Mr. Fantabulous was at some concert and I had the house all to myself. I had it all planned out for my bachelorette night in. I’d make myself a great dinner, take a bubble batch, shut off my computer and watch chick flicks while lounging in the recliner eating copious amounts of seriously bad food. Unfortunately that didn’t happen quite like that. He had already left to go meet up with his buddy and I started to go make dinner. What I came to find out was when I opened up my fridge that it was bare! I mean we’re talking no milk BUT my loving husband left me the empty container (seriously who does this? Write a friggen note!), no meat, no eggs and no cheese. WTH dude!
Now normally I’d be ok with this but this was MY “date” night with myself and I wanted real food. And what made it worse is that I was already in my lounge clothes (aka no bra!) and was mad I had to get re-dressed and put that damn thing back on just to go to the store. Oh no trust me, I did think twice about just throwing a hoodie on over top of everything and heading to the store in those clothes but with my luck I’d end up as one of those “People of Walmart” memes. And while it’s funny when it’s other people it’s not so funny when it’s you.
Begrudgingly I got re-dressed and went down the hill to my local butcher shop. As I was walking through the meat section I spied some seriously awesome looking thick-cut chops. We’re talking pink with that fat edge just begging to be taken home. So into my buggy it went along with some pepperoni, Italian bread and other snacky stuff. And for snacky stuff equals potato chips and fritos. God I love fritos! When I got home I figured since I was going to make it a junk food kinda night I might as well keep with the theme and make a bacon & pepperoni French bread pizza however I could not take my eyes off of those chops.
